Joining Kentucky are the Kansas Jayhawks, UCLA Bruins, Duke Blue Devils, Arizona Wildcats and USC Trojans. You’ll notice a west-coast trend in addition to blue-bloods like Duke and Kentucky, Bagley hails from Sierra Canyon in Tempe, Arizona as he’s considering a school close to him, but he’s also heavily interested in what Kentucky brings to the table.
The 6-11, 220-pound Bagley is rated as the top prospect in 2018 by ESPN, Scout.com and Rivals.com. 247 has him No. 2 behind Zion Williamson, who scored an offer from Kentucky just this week.
While it's still very early, Bagley's 247 Sports Crystal Ball has UK as the leader over UCLA. It’s unclear when he’ll make his decision, but you can bet Kentucky will remain in the running leading up to his pick.
